Jeremiah Scott, 23, has been arrested and booked on suspicion of attempted murder and torture of two girls, ages 1 1/2 and 18 weeks old. According to the Press-Enterprise, Scott’s young daughters were found beaten, bound and gagged in a house near Rubidoux in Riverside County, Calif. He is being held in lieu of $1 million bail.

Sgt. Steve Brown told the Press-Enterprise that sheriff’s deputies went to the house just after 1 p.m. Friday after another adult there had found the girls tied up and left on a bedroom floor. The girls reportedly had visible injuries on their faces and heads. Scott fled the scene but was later found in the neighborhood and arrested.

The girls had non-life threatening injuries to their faces and heads and were taken to a local hospital, the police said. A motive is unknown. This dirtbag doesn’t deserve to see the outside of another prison.
